Hey...medals go in the draw. Last year's blue Preston Harriers mug gets used most days. It is looking forward to meeting its twin this year :0)

Fantastic. Thank you. Found the results there Keith. 53 mins 33 secs. Not bad for a 50 year old with a phobia of hills & puddles :0)

Well done Sue. Fantastic that you are going to take part. Think there will be hills in both the up & down training plans  The hills are all flat if you look down and tell yourself they are flat...seems to work for me. Suspect you could give a lot of us advice on how to complete a double marathon in 11 hours

I know Stephen, it was embarrassing to say 'never again & I mean it' to my other half at the finish line and then can't wait  to be back at the start next year. Note to self - keep one's gob shut at the finish line

Hi Redpanda. How about finding someone to run with or joining the local running club. If it helps, I try to enter a 5km to marathon (mostly 10kms & half-marathon) every week. That keeps you in the mood & training runs during the week have a different purpose  You get to chat with some great people too...on the start line. Do you remember when you thought a marathon would be impossible for you. Well you did that....lesson over
